Oh I did do that walk last year, with my daughter on the way back to Hotel Regina! Ah good times. I just love Francoise Hardy, for such a long time.Thanks for bringing back such great memories Virginia.

Time to go to sleep ... lights out!

Virginia said...

oh Jack!! I could kick myself for not thinking of that as my title!!!! I'm going to see it Wednesday night. I can hardly wait.

Daryl, I wish I could lay my head down in Paris right now.

Perth,
Oh the rue de RIvoli is such a magical street, overlooking the Louvre and Tuileries. Sigh

Léla, yes everything about Paris at night is romantic.

Brittany, moi aussi! :)

I love the European lampposts. Nicely captured. One can feel the atmosphere.

I am behind on my commenting!!
This is a very romantic photo!
I Love the last two posts as well...those beautiful geraniums say French to me and that photo of the children's field trip brought back special memories for me!!

Midnight in Paris, indeed! At least you did not get kicked off the Metro this night! This time last year, we were THERE!

Bises,

Virginia said...

Genie, I've thought about that many times. Oui, this time last year we were seeing Paris together for the first time but I hope not the last.

I love the sounds that you are using so that now I stay on the photo until the song is finished. Thanks for making my evenings so enjoyable.
